Owner description: The doors of one of Europe's most fascinating castle are open to you. This thousand year old historical monument is located in an natural setting on the shores of Lake Geneva in at the foot of the Alps in Switzerland. Individual or groups tours, unaccompanied, guided or with an audioguide are available. Chillon also organises exhibitions, artistic and popular performances, as well as concerts throughout the year. Open all year round (except January 1 and December 25).

Really enjoyed our visit despite the cold weather and the persistent rain. The castle looked beautiful with a light covering of snow. Quite well set out to wander around, lovely views of the lake (I'm sure would be spectacular in less grey weather).
Picked up some of the Chateau's own wine in the gift shop, which was very enjoyable.

Chateau Chillon on the shores of Lake Geneva is a delight. It is exceptionally well preserved and can be thoroughly explored in less than two hours. It has a dungeon, dining hall, guard towers, and even secret passages. Kids will go absolutely nuts for this place! In fact, the curators have many child-oriented events here: medieval dress-up days, story time, Christmas events, the works. I've been here 3 times and will always pay a visit whenever I am in Montreux.

Not very elaborate.........but gorgeous location. The open spaces around also allow for a BBQ, and it was great to see people enjoying the summer :)

If You can visit the castle in December there is a medieval Christmas market inside every weekend. The view is amazing, the lake and the mountains.
